The Contribution of the Counselor-Client Working Alliance to Career Exploration
Elad-Strenger, Julia; Littman-Ovadia, Hadassah
Journal of Career Assessment, v20 n2 p140-153 May 2012
This longitudinal study examines the effects of Israeli counselors' and clients' ratings of their working alliance on clients' career exploration (CE), using a sample of 94 three-session career counseling processes. Results reveal that both clients' and counselors' working alliance ratings increased over time; yet, clients' ratings remained constantly above counselors' ratings. Results also suggest that clients' working alliance ratings are a better predictor of clients' CE than counselors' ratings. Implications for career counseling are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
